Abstract : This report presents data from written questionnaires completed by 272 trainees representing five first-cycle training companies in the 63rdInfantry Regiment. Major findings of the survey are given. In the body of the report these findings are elaborated and considered within the context of the new soldier's first Army training. The findings are interpreted as evidence of problems which are essentially organizational rather than individual. These problems are seen as arising in part from the position of the training company in relation to the achievement of the over-all training goals. In light of the interpretation offered, certain problems of effecting improvement in conditions are discussed, with emphasis on difficulties inherent in traditional methods. (Author)
